Whether you’ve got a new electric or acoustic guitar ready to shred or a dusty old one in a closet somewhere you’ve been meaning to learn to play, now’s the chance to start bending strings. A. you’ve got some extra time on your hands, and B. you’ve watched enough Netflix. All those music documentaries will be much more interesting once you can actually call yourself a musician, too.

You could just watch a bunch of YouTube videos and try to figure things out yourself, but you’ll need a lot of self-discipline – something most of us are lacking during the days of COVID-19. Instead, just sign yourself up for this Ultimate Beginner to Expert Guitar Lessons Bundle. Even if you’re a total noob, you’ll be shredding the strings like a pro by the end of this 59-hour, nine-course guitar curriculum.

Led by Dan Dresnok, a seasoned guitarist with over 26 years of teaching experience, this training starts with the very basics of reading tablature (tab) and playing basic chords. You’ll take a crash course in finding every note on the guitar, strumming, and all the basic chords, then move on to rhythms, arpeggios, scales, modes, and more. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll tackle guitar techniques like hammer-ons and pull-offs, slides, and bends, trills, and vibrato, and fret-tapping, and ear-training tricks to identify all musical pitches.

As a guitarist, Dresnok has written a number of method books and published several online courses. He specializes in jazz, bluegrass, blues, rock, and music theory – all of which you’ll tackle in this nine-course bundle. And don’t worry, with a 4.5-star instructor rating out of over 20,000 students, you’re definitely in good hands.

Worth $1,600, you can save over 90% and sign up for this beginner’s guitar training for just $29 and start humming and strumming on your Instagram Live as a new quarantine pastime.
